Clinics

RESPIRATORY CLINIC
Our Practice Nurse is fully trained in the management of respiratory disease and runs regular asthma and COPD clinics. Appointments can be made by a member of the reception team.


DIABETIC CLINIC
Diabetic clinics are run by our treatment room nurse Kate White and Dr Maire O’Donnell. Please ask at reception for details on making an appointment.


CERVICAL SMEARS
The surgery is keen to promote prevention of women’s diseases. Smears are normally carried out by our practice nurse, but can also be done by the doctors. Recent guideline changes recommend that women between the ages of 25 – 49 should have a cervical smear carried out every three years and women aged 50 – 65 should have a cervical smear carried out every five years - it is a quick and painless procedure but a very important part of your health care.


FAMILY PLANNING
If you have any questions regarding family planning please make an appointment with the doctor. We provide guidance on available methods of contraception, and assist you with finding the best choice for you. Dr Coyle inserts and removes Nexplanon - the contraceptive Implant at both surgeries in the practice. Please make an appointment with her if you are interested in this option. Bearing in mind the high incidence of teenage pregnancy, we particularly welcome inquiries from younger ladies.


MINOR SURGERY
Dr Coyle carries out a range of procedures. Dr O’Donnell also offers joints injections. If you feel you would benefit from any of these services please contact the surgery to make an appointment.


ANTI-COAGULATION CLINIC
The practice nurse will provide further details of this clinic on request.


IMMUNISATIONS
Baby clinics are held at both surgeries every second week held every second week. Clinics are held in our West Belfast Surgery on Thursday mornings and in our North Belfast Surgery on Wednesday mornings. (Times and dates may differ due to Coronavirus)

Childhood immunisations are performed by our Practice Nurse at one of the clinics above. A Doctor will also be in attendance for advice and child development assessment. Each child should have a red Child Health Record Folder, detailing the recommended immunisation schedules. We are committed to support the recommended schedule of immunisations, including MMR. The Practice Nurse will need parental consent before giving any vaccines.
